My predictions: 4/5, picking “It’s Only the End of the World” over “Tanna”
My ballot: Come back in February!
The nominees: Land of Mine (Denmark), A Man Called Ove (Sweden), The Salesman (Iran), Tanna (Australia), Toni Erdmann (Germany)
I did pretty well here, missing only the fifth slot. I’ve seen “Toni Erdmann” (didn’t particularly like it), I’m hoping to see “The Salesman” when I get back from Sundance, and I know that “A Man Called Ove” is out on DVD. “Land of Mine” should be released soon in theaters, and I’m hoping to catch “Tanna” if I can at some point. I hadn’t seen any of the other finalists; it’s just a few of the non-finalists and non-submissions that I was lamenting not being here.
My current bet to win: At this point, I’d say Toni Erdmnan, but I just don’t know without having seen them.
